out of washington, dc, and especially from president obama, is a very schizophrenic political game. if you understand the whole idea about sequester came from the white house, and we know that for a fact because according to the press secretary, according to senator bachus and bob worldy, and then in 2011 said he would veto any plan to avoid the sequester. and then in 2012 he said the sequester could not happen. now he comes back from playing golf with tiger woods, he has his conference and starts with the fear mongering and the threats. it's very simple, neil. there are two pieces of legislation that will replace the sequester with very real spending cuts that we passed last year in the house of representatives, hr5652 and hr6684. but you also talk about something that we all must realize. until we move away from the baseline budget system where we have an increase and basically talking about cutting the increase, we'll never get to the real problem in wbc. >> when i looked at what the republican strategy was on this, sit this out, wait the president out, continue with their vacat
